The municipality of Gunskirchen decided to refurbish the street lighting system to energy-efficient LED technology using EPC, since it recognised that its street lighting system required significant refurbishment work and that the technology currently in use would soon be affected by the phasing out of lamps. The objective of the project was to find a good solution for every street. For the implementation, the municipality hired a planner who carried out a tendering procedure. Five ESCOs were invited to bid and all submitted for the call. The main criterion for this project was to reduce electricity consumption and maintenance costs without compromising the quality of the public lighting services.
This case study was developed in the context of the EU-Project Streetlight-EPC which is supported by Intelligent Energy Europe Programme.
